This product is the same formula as MucosaHeal, but with a new name! The NAG was changed to a vegan source to remove the shellfish allergen and wildcrafted ingredients were added.
People with inflammatory bowel disease suffer from a damaged glycosaminoglycan layer (mucosal lining) and their intestinal tract is often riddled with ulcers, fissures, inflamed patches and sometimes fistulas. MucosaCalm provides excellent demulcent and mucilage activity for the gastrointestinal tract and mucosal lining, thanks to the following ingredients:*
Ingredients Per 3 Capsules:
N-Acetyl Glucosamine - 600 mg
Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice Root Extract 4:1
Wildcrafted Slippery Elm Bark
Wildcrafted Marshmallow Root
Other ingredients: Vegetable capsule (hypromellose and water)
This product is 100% natural. No artificial ingredients or preservatives. Does not contain wheat, yeast, soy, milk, lactose, or sugar. Certified gluten-free (less than 20 ppm). The N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) in this product is vegan.
Deglycyrrhizinated Licorice (DGL) - reduces muscle spasms, promotes adrenal gland function, soothes inflammation and fights bacterial, viral and parasitic infection. DGL also increases the number of mucus-secreting cells in the intestine, which improves the quality of the mucosal lining, lengthens intestinal cell life and enhances microcirculation in the gastrointestinal tract. DGL is a very powerful anti-inflammatory that is often used to replace steroid (eg. Prednisone) therapy by naturopathic physicians. It is also an excellent remedy for heartburn.*
Wildcrafted Slippery Elm - good for diarrhea and ulcers when taken internally. Soothes inflamed mucous membranes of the stomach, intestines and urinary tract.*
Wildcrafted Marshmallow Root - soothes and heals mucous membranes, skin and other tissues. Aids the body in expelling excess mucus and fluid.*
N-Acetyl Glucosamine (NAG) - an amino sugar that forms the basis of complex molecular structures that are key parts of the connective tissue and mucous membranes of the body - tendons, ligaments, cartilage, bone matrix, skin, synovial (joint) fluid, and intestinal lining. To maintain healthy absorption and digestion of food, the body needs a healthy mucosal lining to lubricate and protect the digestive tract. To keep this lining healthy the body uses the natural amino acids and sugars L-Glutamine and N-Acetyl Glucosamine. It is also an immune system modulator with anti-tumor properties. NAG is also used by naturopathic physicians to replace steroid drug therapy.*
SUGGESTED USE: Use of MucosaCalm should vary according to the severity of symptoms you're experiencing. Many natural health professionals classify severe symptoms as those including intestinal bleeding and severe inflammation. Moderate symptoms are classed as those including minimal or sporadic intestinal bleeding and moderate inflammation.
MucosaCalm must always be taken on an empty stomach (1/2 hour before meals, or 2 hours after). If you can't swallow pills, you can empty the contents of the capsules into water, or a non-acidic juice like apple or pear, mix well and drink on an empty stomach.
To help with severe symptoms: Take 2 capsules on an empty stomach, 3 times a day. Then take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
To help with moderate symptoms: Take 1 capsule 3 times per day, on an empty stomach. Then take 3 capsules on an empty stomach right before bed. Ideally, empty your bowels before taking the 3 capsules at night.
Maintenance: Once your major symptoms concerns have been resolved, or if your symptoms are mild to begin with, take 3 capsules before bed, on an empty stomach. Ideally, empty your bowels first.

This is a product I formulated. It contains the ingredients that I feel are the best healers for the intestinal wall and mucosal lining, and highly likely to be well tolerated. If you’re having 3 or more bowel movements per day, then make sure you open the capsules and mix them in water (or diluted apple juice) and drink on an empty stomach (20 minutes before food, or 2 hours after food).
Although it must be taken on an empty stomach, MucosaHeal can be combined (taken at the same time) with certain other supplements like George's Aloe Vera Juice, NAG, L-Glutamine, etc. that also need to be taken on an empty stomach AND are being taken for the same purpose (to heal the gut lining). But, MucosaHeal cannot be taken together with Probiotics.
You also would not want to take it together with any substance that has a bowel clearing or detox effect, as you want MucosaHeal to stay in contact with your intestinal lining, not be flushed out.
MucosaCalm is such an excellent product. It truly helps keep a peaceful gut. I take three in the evening on an empty stomach mixed with my l-glutamine and aloe vera juice. If I have a flareup, I simply go to one capsule three times a day and I'm back to calm in one to two days - then I go back to the maintenance dose. It has helped my Crohn's condition more than I can express.
This is a great product! all of Jini's products
are top notch!thank you Jini, you are the best!
This product along with pre and pro biotics, George's aloe, Oregano oil, adequate fiber... has helped me heal and avert 2 episodes of diverticulitis this past year.
That means I did NOT have to go on Toxic Antibiotics. LOVE IT!

I take this product as a precautionary measure based on this website's recommendation. I take a number of other measures in concert with this product. Considering that I have not had a flair in some time, I can only surmise that this product contributes in some positive way. Its unfortunate that they do not offer loyal customers significant discounts on multiple bottle purchases, as is true of other health oriented websites. in the interest of full disclosure, I was offered a one time 10% discount, but this falls far short of showing that they have any customer loyalty.

Have a great day,
I found out about Mucosaheal from LTYG. I'm so glad I started using this. It has made a world of difference in my ulcerative colitis symptoms. It truly helped reduce the irritation/inflammation and the urgency that came along with it. I'm in a flare and on Mesalamine 800mg 3X a day but was not getting this type of symptom management until I added the Mucosaheal. I stopped taking it after my last flare was under control. I should have continued it as a preventative.
I don't know if the product works or not. I take it as a preventative measure. I haven't had a flair in a while, so maybe this is a contributing factor. I have a fundamental trust and belief in Jinni, having watched her youtube videos. So, I am going to try most things she suggests. It would be nice if they offered a discount for ordering 4 or more bottles.

We appreciate the feedback and wish you all the best!.
Not sure how I lived without it, but thank goodness I found it. What a difference it has made. I no longer have to live on antibiotics. I feel like a new person. I have diverticular disease and felt like I was a prisoner to it. I no longer live with stomach pain or diarrhea, or the threat of being hospitalized constantly. What a lifesaver!
I began using this product after being diagnosed with diverticulitis, which wasn't being helped with antibiotics nor change in diet. Within two days of taking the product, I noticed an instant change. The pain and cramps stopped; the diarrhea stopped; and my stomach began healing. I've already reordered this product and will continue to take a maintenance dose daily.
I have Crohn's and after one day of taking a strong dosage my chronic diarrhea stopped and I've continued on 7 tablets a day for 4 days and I can't take any Loperamides (anti-laxative medication) because I get constipation. I can eat whatever I want without getting diarrhea so I can finally begin a low carb diet and eat nutritious food to get rid of my infection. I'm more comfortable because I get much less bloating and pain. What's werid is that I tried some a month earlier by emptying the contents into water but it did seem to make my diarrhea worse but this time I begun taking 1/2 teaspoon of probiotic every day for a week and taking oregano oil a few weeks before. I think applying Jini's protocols together have made the difference.
